ProEXR Ships

We've shipped our first new plug-in in quite some time: ProEXR. Check it out.

This is one of those plug-ins that I was just dying to have for myself. I've been into the whole HDR thing for a while, and OpenEXR is definitely the format de rigueur. But there were so many things it could do that Adobe (and many other companies) weren't supporting, I had to intervene.

You may have seen that the After Effects plug-ins are open source—that's a first for us. Of course they're free too…although you get them in the commercial download. Hope that's not too confusing.

And you may be interested to know that file format plug-ins creating layers in Photoshop isn't exactly a supported thing and at several times during development I thought this plug-in would never make it. It was an exciting night when everything actually appeared to be working.
